I'll begin by saying that it isn't completely fair for people from Georgia to review barbecue in California. First, the service was superb, friendly and helpful. But the food, though fairly priced for the beach, was really just average. The Super Pig sandwich, and the baby-back ribs both came slathered in a mediocre BBQ sauce, which was too sweet, and...

Starkey's owner is using his/her head by opening his BBQ joint at 8 a.m. for breakfast. Nothing else open for the body boarders' and beach goer's heading to Mission Beach. Sat outside on the sidewalk tables enjoying our pancakes, waffles and Dave's Special Scramble. Cost reasonable and service by the only person in the restaurant Juan who cooked and served... More

After driving all day enjoying (not) the Southern California traffic, took the family for dinner. This little place was walking distance from our condo. Overall, the food was good but not great. One son loved his BBCB burger. All burgers are big with two quarter pound patties. My other son liked his h5-Oh shredded chicken sandwich. My wife and I... More

Starkey's BBQ Mission Blvd Visited June 18th for dinner take-out and June 20th for breakfast We found Starkey's BBQ one evening after leaving Sea World park - it's not far from the park and within walking distance to our hotel as well. A bonus as well, while waiting for our take-out to be prepared we tried a couple of drinks... More

The sandwiches are excellent- the sides have great seasoning on them. Bloody mary drinks are perfect spice. They like things on the spicy side which is perfect for us

Went right as the coffee was brewing and enjoyed this little gem with the very yummy $2 breakfast burrito and fresh coffee. The staff was happy to see us (the morning guy was very pleasant and lively, even at that unGodly hour). The morning waitress was also very nice. Wish I'd gone back for the evening shift, but it appeared... More

Good tasting food and good service. Walking distance to Balboa Park and the beach in Mission Beach, San Diego. Good value considering it IS a tourist spot.
